swash

Bengala is a trendy new type system. The family is made up of a script style, an extended all-caps style, and an ornament set that includes the animal illustrations shown here.






Hi
Could you put a name on this font ?

thx a lot

We have just released a new typeface, Adriane Swash. A new version of the award winning Adriane Text. Visit the project here: http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/typefolio/adriane-swash/

Hi there!

I am fairly new to vectorizing type and I would like some very constructive and critical feedback. I am very new to Glyphs and that is what I used to build this out (see the below to get all intimate with my nodes). Please let me know what you think! Where I can improve it, and other thoughts.

Hi! I'm designing a layered typeface with three weights and some extra glyphs (ligatures, swashes and some weird alternates). I made open type feature for ligatures and kerns but I let some extra glyphs without feature. When I use those glyphs and I change the weight, the glyph doesn't change. For example, if I write "BARCELONA" with one of my extra B's, and I change the weight, it change all the word except the B.
I've been looking the generated file and it seems that those extra glyphs without feature doesn't have UICODE names, so when we change the weight, they doesn't change. I've tryied to use the option GLYPHS>GLYPHS NAME>GENERATE UNICODE but it doesn't work.
Anyone knows what can I do to generate the same UNICODE names on the three weights.

This is a hailing port of my dad's friend. He wants it burned into a cutting board. I, being the artist in the family, am the go to guy for doing this. Usually its easy stuff, Times Roman, Palatino, Trajan, but this...would have to be totally recreated. I am not getting paid for this. Any help figuring out what typestyle this is would be vastly appreciated! I'd rather not tweak 2 or 3 hours worth of bezier handles if I can avoid it.

This is not exactly an ID, but I was wondering if anyone knew a typeface that contains alternates like the 'N' in this sample. I know this is HFJ Requiem and only for Nature Conservancy, but I am curious about other available fonts that have elaborate swashes on both sides of the 'N' like this one.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Anyone know what the typeface is for the "Holiday 2012" text? Images attached. thank you!

dear friends typophiles!
i am glad to present you new Arsenal contrast sans typeface. the project wins the contest for ukrainian font by Mystetsky Arsenal foundation and Stairfors design studio (some info in english about it you can find here and here).
so now it is typefamily of four fonts, released under OFL for free download.



interesting that it includes few unusual historic alternates for cyrillic letters (like latin-looking f with double bar for ф or round form for я) from old ukrainian origins.

Daphne by Georg Salden

Daphne was developed from a text written with a broad nib pen. A large number of calligraphic swashes are available for the strong and sharp-edged figures of Daphne Expert. They can be added to the letters via OpenType feature. Because many swashes fit on different characters, the combinations possible are endless. Alternate and complete swash characters offer additional options. An unique application for designers with a calligraphic instinct.

This looks fairly close to Adobe Caslon…but not quite. Anyone know what this is?

Saw this the other day and would love to know what the font is. Looks pretty contemporary, but any ideas gratefully received.

Many thanks!

Can anyone help me with finding out what this font is called, I can't find it anywhere!?

Weingut Script Flourish is a decorative display font with high contrasts, perfectly drawn to the tiniest details. The font is trimmed to fairly large font sizes and is highly suitable for chapter titles or book jackets as well as Headlines, Invitations and wine labels, although also impressing with an astounding legibility in small typesettings. Inspired by the hand drawn Blätterschrift from the 19th century Mettenleiter’s Schriftenmagazin, its basic structure is related to the English Script. The creative process started in summer 2009 and after 600 hours of work, over a 2 year period, Weingut now unfolds to reveal all its charms.

Clip by Urtd

Clip is a display typeface inspired by the shape of a paperclip, but it’s not designed with the usual minimalistic modular approach. Instead, Clip mimics the construction, proportions and contrast of classic bold text typefaces and has one unique characteristic: each of its characters is drawn with only one single line.

Clip family consists of 3 fonts, Hair, Light and Regular, each with 745 glyphs (supporting more than 70 latin based languages), 4 stylistic sets and advanced OpenType features. When Stylistic set 1 is activated, the overlapping loops contract, giving the text a whole new character. Moreover, every uppercase character is also available in an ornamental swash variant, which means most of the capitals have four different versions.

Here is the Swash M of a script I'm working on.
What do you think?

Sometimes you just do stuff for fun and the learning process. Here is a first cut on what will become Froggy Swash. That flying frog tongue which leaps out some great distance and snatches an unassuming bug off a lilly pad was the motivation. Also, a little fun poked at {calt} use in this day and age.

Upright Swash Capitals

Can anyone recommend typefaces with upright swash capitals (not italics)?

This may be a common question, but I was wondering if anyone knew of a structural sans-serif (like Gotham or Proxima Nova) that had an alternate character set with colorful swashes, like Caslon or Garamond do.

I frequently find myself wanting to set headlines in a strong, simple face and then dress up one or two letters; if I had such a font in my back pocket, I think it could happen. I'd appreciate any leads!

Hi! My very first post - logged in because of this question.
I want to make the following rule in OT font:

(in human language) If the word ends with "r", it should be substituted with "r.alt"

So far I've been trying to understand FL manual, search this forum and google for tutorials, but with no luck at all.

Hello,

I'm working on a legacy mark to commemorate the 25th anniversary for a St. Louis arts organization. Out of several options, here's the direction my client picked. It's loosely based on Bodoni and Benton Modern.

If anyone could offer some input on how to improve the curves, I'd really appreciate it. Some areas don't feel quite right yet, particularly in the way the swashes above and below cradle the shapes of the numbers.

Feedback much appreciated.

Hello all,

I am working on a logo design for a photographer. I am finally to playing with beziers. I'd like some feedback on my progress. Attached is a little process of the modifications.

Let me know if you think something is too much or too little or if you have other suggestions. I want it to feel a little more natural, but mostly to just feel "right" if that makes sense.

Thanks!!

I've recently learned how to use Fontlab Studio 5, and I also learned how to script ligatures. But I noticed Illustrator for example has more buttons in the type tool section: Standard Ligatures, Contextual Ligatures, Discretionary Ligatures, Swash, Stylistic Alternates, Titling Alternates, Ordinals and Fractions.

So out of that list, I only know how to script the standard ligatures. Does anyone know how to script the others, or do you know a source to learn about it? Most font families contain all the ligatures and swash letters as seperate fonts rather than putting it into a single font (OpenType). Is there a reason for doing this?
